If you enjoy authentic Delta Blues and cigar box guitar music from the early 1900's to the 1950's, this CD disc is full of long lost sounds from America's past.
This is old-time Blues music and Southern Bottleneck cigar box guitar that has been recorded on only 3 and 4 string homemade guitars. If you liked the movie Crossroads or the guitar playing from Ry Cooder, you will enjoy the vintage cigar box guitar playing that has been recorded on this Disc.

To record this music, I've played 3 string cigar box guitars, Electric Bottleneck 4 string cigar box guitars, and Cigar Box Resonator guitars. I have also used old and vintage 1960's and 70's guitar amplifiers. Some were naturally overdriven some were clear as a bell. I've also used the legendary "Pignose" amp to record several songs to get that old time Southern Bottleneck gritty sound.

I have also recorded several songs with some old Retro "Radio Guitar Amps." They were antique radios from the 1940's and 50's that have been converted and turned into guitar amplifiers. They record with a really unique and vintage tone.
The music and songs are all sounds that are vintage and southern in flavor, perfect for study if your trying to learn early Americana or slide guitar, or just enjoy it as a relaxing way to step back in time.

There is also song Delta Slide from Fuzzy Whitener, one of that last old school Bluesmen, and yes, he's playing cigar box guitar. NO regular guitars were used and NO singing and NO band, this is a full music CD disc with only cigar box guitar songs. The best way to learn how to play cigar box guitar, is to listen to cigar box guitar guitar!
